  • Asus or Gigabyte, Which do you prefer!

    Just wondering which one people prefer of either Gigabyte or Asus.
    I think they both make excellent boards, but lately I've started to prefer Gigabyte.

    What about you?

      I think people will mainly say ASUS, everytime I ask about a Gigabyte mobo, i get an ASUS equivalent thrown in my face

        Gigabyte. Na Asus really. I can't comment on their RMA's as in 15 years or more of using their products, I have never needed it.
        My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

            Yeah, the products are good. The only thing i had to RMA was a workstation board that had 4 x DDR2 slots but would only take 4Gb of ram. with 8Gb it wont boot. And it should have supported 8GB

              I try and avoid brand preferences, but Gigabyte's RMA service is win in the UK.

                I've had better OC experiences on cheap/(budget) giga boards against low priced asus boards, but on the top end I've had better experience with Asus again.

                  I tend to prefer ASUS. However ATM my manufacturer of choice is MSI.

                      Because of their stunning good looks I'd have previously said Gigabyte but Asus are doing the Black n Blue thang now and the ROG stuff has always looked fairly awesome imo so it's tough to call.

                      You can either put that down to my shallowness or my belief that there's so little to call between them.

                      Probably better value with Gigabyte

                      But I love to see what MSI can produce on a good day.

                        Asus, because they gave me stuff for freeeee

                        i5 750 + current P7P55D Deluxe + Asus Xonar D2X + a couple games.

                        although if im buying, i'd go for whichever gets good reviews.
